About

 

Kristina, wife to Jordan, mother of two, professional chef and fitness instructor

Daja, wife to Gana, mother of eight, childbirth educator and doula

2 Moms, 1 Mission

To prepare our homes—kitchens, pantries, and gardens—to be ready in case of emergencies or unexpected life changes.  To do so we will not increase our food budgets nor cause our family to subsist on bread and water.  We will strive for the following ideals:

~Real Food
We will not recommend you go out and buy food-like substances, just because they have a shelf life.  We will learn to make Real Food last.

~Organic, local and sustainable whenever possible
This is not always possible, but is a lot more possible than people think.  We’ll try to show you how we feed our families while being true to our values.

~Frugality
We will search out things that are genuinely good deals and not just short term solutions.  We will strive to be good stewards of the family finances.

~Environmentally friendly
We will try to find ways to store our food and stock our pantries without resorting to a bunch of disposables that overfill already overfull landfills.

~Transparency
We will not act like we have all the answers and will show you our mistakes and learn to laugh at them!

Meet Kristina!

    Hey there. How many Daja’s are there in the word? How fun it was to see you here!! And so fun to see all that you are continuing to learn….remembering the old days of “country clutch”. We continue to be learning about healthy foods and loving our family. Now I have a new and younger generation on the journey. Only four children at home, still. But what a blessing. Say hi to your family from us….love, cheryl

    I am so excited to read your blog! This has been something that the LOrd has put on my heart. It is so exciting to find like-minded Christians, homeschooling, large family etc! I am trying to build up a pantry, and all that I have come across is Moromon stuff (which is great and very informative)! I wish more christian had the same convictions! Thank you so much!
    Keep up the good work!
